  1. Hi there!

    don't forget the breeding box!
  2. Hello

    what has happened to this site, no new posts?
  3. Budgie twisting head funny

    sounds like you have a male budgie who is ready to mate, remember that all animals, people have individual traits- I have one particular budgie that will roll on anything as soon as a spray of water is around, even when on a perch, generally doesn't work out well for him, I laugh like mad
  4. Hi I just found this video, seems to me that a black budgie may have possibilities? maybe not , I don't know but I would like a pair, been around a couple of years it seems, anyone up to speed about these? any feed back would be interesting

  6. My New Long Flight Aviary

    Thanks RIP, well I've put in a couple of square ones just for variety really. Too late to change the perch rack we built yesterday but I'll take your point and use only round ones for the final perch rack we build next. they won't be square for too long!
  7. Who Rings There Birds

    I USE CODED RINGS BUT FOR SPLITS i USE, PLASTIC SPLIT RINGS FOR VARIOUS VARIETIES, WHITE FOR COCK BIRDS SPLIT FOR ALBINO, PURPLE FOR LACEWING SPLITS, YELLOW FOR LUTINOS, WHATEVER BLOWS YOUR HAIR BACK AS LONG AS YOU HAVE RECORDS OF SOME DESCRIPTION IF YOU DON'T HAVE RECORDS YOUR JUST BREEDING FOR THE FUN OF IT (NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT!)
  8. The Clutch Of Winter '08

    Fantastic photos, great photographer? or good camera?
  9. Pairing In The Breeding Cabinet

    Well...it took 3 days to change her mind....if I have any others giving me trouble I will try your way The cock bird is a Gary Armstrong bird ( W.A. ) The hen is a Jan Mc Mahon bird with Cec Gearing and Chidel bloodlines. Got Cec's & Jans blood & did pretty well with them last year but I was a bit too keen to pair up , this year I spent 3 months looking & thinking prior to pairing, time will tell! haven't got Armstrong blood got - Gazzard, Oconnor/Turner, Carl Elder, John Payne, Len Larsen, Dodgy bros & Fran /John Mc Laughlan
  10. Pairing In The Breeding Cabinet

    Very nice birds Kaz Who's Blood? with pairing sometimes helpfull to attach a small cage to the breeding cabinet with the male in it-4 days bingo!
  11. Driving Me Crazy!

    YEP you got a budgie! Budgies hang out in huge flocks in the wild, it is only natural that they make a racket -they thrive on the noise of the rest of the flock, do you want to breed? the more you got, the more noise, the better the result! (circumstances pending). You'll probably find that if you listen to the outside/inside enviroment you may hear many contributing factors that are making him ark up- listen- radio on? local parrots about (or other birds sounding out?) your bird is calling out for friends- chirping is (chatting to himself or if available chatting up a female) obnoxious squaks is trying to find someone to talk to (chirp & chatter), you could try putting a radio close by - down low or get really into it and buy truckloads more budgies- yahoo the more the better- though then you'll really go deaf! Remember all animals & people have different personalties some quiet some damn roudy, you'll just have to watch him more and sort out what makes him carry on, good luck, the budgie journey has just begun .
  12. The Black Budgie

    Thanks again will do some research
  13. The Black Budgie

    thanks Kaz, when I was over WA I contacted you to buy birds, but the fundige situation change on me. I've got a couple of decent flecked opalines i might play with, I think I would feel better not to conform to the rule & continue not to show but to develop, do you know anyone that may have melanistics? would like to get a hold of a pair (even if they are related, go the splits) Steve
  14. The Black Budgie

    SORRY I think I posted this in the wrong area? mighty interesting subject! (i'll eventually get to the point- BLACK) I wouldn't mind if someone could give me their thoughts on FLECKING I don't have much knowledge in the genetics department as yet so i'd like to leave this to others- over the years i've noticed that these birds on most occaisions are generally extremely good in many ways for exhibition though flecking is frowned upon. i've mates in WA with birds that are that heavily flecked that the black on the head feathers are showing as spots (just like cheek spots, only in relation to the size of the head feather) nearly making the head completely black- could this be a possible starting point? or would it have no impact? any thoughts would be appreciated. In regard to club treatment look how melanistic spangles are being treated! why are people so damn one eyed ! how many years does it take to get a new variety recognised- especially from regarded breeders over the world? HEADS NEED TO BE PULLED OUT OF THE SAND! lets progress this dying fancy! not kill it!
  15. Record Keeping Programs

    I would suggest that if you are breeding a few varieties / bloodlines of birds, trying to improve your breeding stock; then you have no choise but to gain access to a breeding program (computer) as you will never keep up with the information that you would require. Send out a help call for someone to burn a copy for you , they aren't that easy for you to understand, at first, but you will get the hang of it eventually(somethings don't seem to be applicable but they are!think a bit!after you have complained why things are done) Bruffy
